David Siegel began thinking about Graphite in 1982, looking for an architects handwriting with a chiselled pencil look, much like Tekton exemplifies the architects pen and ink metaphor. The handwriting of San Francisco architect Anthony Celis LaRosa became Siegels choice. With the assistance of David Berlow and Tom Rickner, Graphite was designed and released with weight and width axes that allow for its use in a dynamic range from light condensed to black extended. Like Tekton, Graphite is an upright script with simple lines, and is usable in a large variety of informal copysetting situations.
This face is designed to used at a text size of 18.0 points.
